Frankly Speaking’, A Memoir, is the
personal life journey of Dallas-Ft. Worth radio personality Frank Reed. From
his humble beginnings in Kissimmee, Florida, to the halls of Rockefeller Plaza
in New York where he worked on the air between Don Imus and Howard Stern, to
his current radio address at KLTY in North Texas, Reed shares the adventures,
stories and insights that led him to the spiritual truths that now guide his
life. ‘Frankly Speaking’ is very much like listening to Frank Reed on the
radio; it is friendly, warm and welcoming. 
“What I’ve concluded is God is
looking for willing hearts, not perfect people.”
 ~ Frank Reed
Frank Reed and I share a long
history together. For over 20 years it’s always been a pleasure to join Frank
on the radio, or have him introduce me in concert. He’s been a supportive
friend and the consummate professional. I always love when Frank shares his
stories and now they’re all captured here, in ‘Frankly Speaking.’ His journey
through secular radio, to finding Christ, his wife Patti, and his on air ‘home’
at KLTY in Dallas-Ft. Worth. It’s an address I hope he keeps for years to come!
Within these pages you have the opportunity to look into the heart of the man
behind the microphone, my good friend Frank Reed.

I’ve always known that Frank had a
way with words. For twenty-plus years I’ve laughed and cried as his rich voice
inspired and informed listeners of all ages on KLTY Radio in Dallas. So it’s no
surprise that the man who has held my attention behind the microphone carried
that same authenticity and character to the written page. Yet, here I found
more to the man than just the incredible ‘radio’ voice-celebrity. In the pages
of his book, I found a jazzy wordsmith willing to share his authentic and
sometimes painful journey. And once again, I found myself laughing, crying, and
learning as he shared his journey of career, family, and faith. At some point,
(as is often the case with many of my morning drives listening) I found myself
wishing it didn’t have to end so soon.
